ABOUT THE CHALLENGE
The Paradigm Challenge is an annual competition developed by Project Paradigm (a private foundation) and the American Red Cross to inspire youth to affect positive change in the world.
The first annual challenge aims to generate new ideas to prevent injuries and fatalities from home fires – America’s #1 disaster threat. We invite youth aged 7 to 18 to accept The Challenge, build a team, become problem solvers, learn about home fires, and help save lives.
Youth across the country are challenged to team up and join the fight against home fires. Sign up to learn about the problem and how to create a solution. We welcome all ideas including posters, videos, inventions, messages, community events, mobile apps, websites, or anything else that will help save lives. The 100 teams with the best ideas will win cash prizes up to $100,000!
FIRE IS EVERYONE’S FIGHT ™ We believe in the power of youth. Your creative ideas can help save lives. We challenge you to change the world.
